Shopping at Wal-Mart?

Monday, September 04, 2006

Shopping at WalMart is good for the middle class and upper border line poor and middle class, but if you are like me middle poor it can be expensive. What I do is buy milk there every twice a month and freeze a jug of milk too. It last two weeks. I then go to the Family Dollar store in my neighborhood for food that isn't freezer related every middle of the month. The nineth of the month I use food stamps to shop for hamburger and vegatarian meat at the local warehouse grocery store this takes up most of my food stamps, so twice a month I go to the food shelf too aka community food pantry for food that is free. You have to live in the area and county, but if you find one near you and can't afford food for three meals a day every month go sign up its worth it. Also, don't be afraid to complain if the food is not good. It may be free, but that is no reason it has to be spoiled or bad to eat, even they have guidelines they have to follow about health codes and such. well good luck:).
